So basically i need to host videos on my VPS as my current host doesn't have enough space for vast amount of videos, and i am wondering how i should go about this.

Is it possible to Link my Apache web server to my current host CPanel and use it kind of like an external hard drive, is this even a think or an option?

or is it possible to host each video on my VPS but giving each one a unique web address from there i am able to Embed the videos on to my site.

Thankyou in advance im just stuck and such a noob when it comes to creating a local web server, but eh we have to start somewhere :)

Of course it's posible! You can host the videos on an external server and access them through a public api (uri).

If these are videos must have restricted Access you should use a validation layer to serve them to the right people. If you don't have a clue of anything I said, then just upload the videos to a folder in your server and you'll have static paths to the files.

If you want to avoid the hassle you can just subscribe to a service like Vimeo Enterprise.
